game I suddenly adopted a thoughtless and inadequate attitude by leaving the pitch before the end of the game,” he said on his Facebook page.
“Once the heat of the moment had died down, I realised, in calmness and with the support of my family, that the incident was unsporting and contradicted my professional values. “I recognise my mistake and would like to register my sincere apologies to all the Inter fans who always supported me and to my teammates.”
Gabriel, who made his professional debut as a 16-year-old in 2013, emerged as one of Brazil’s great hopes during three seasons at Pele’s former club as he scored 57 goals and impressed with his pace, trickery, skill and clinical finishing.
He scored on his Brazil debut against Panama last year, went on to play at the Copa Centenario and won Olympic gold in Rio de Janeiro with the Under-23 team.
Vecchi said after the game that he expected the club to take action, although Inter have not commented since. Reuters
